King's Kids Continue to Care for Older Citizens
Through the King's AMP'd program, the College has had a strong community relationship with TriCare Pimpama nursing home for over a year. This relationship aims to build generational friendships with the senior citizens and our students in our local community.
The Year 6 students thought it would be a lovely gesture to serve this community and brighten their days with some love and bring joy to their mealtimes by creating colourful placemats for the residents of TriCare Pimpama, as part of their Servanthood Project in Term 1.
These kind actions are a heartfelt expression of our students to ensure they maintain the friendships and connections made in the past, particularly in this current climate of social distancing.
Since the King’s AMP’d group could not visit the nursing home during the Covina-19 outbreak, the Year 6 classes got working to make about 30 placemats to cheer up the residents at lunch and dinner time with their artwork pieces.
Due to strict health regulations the placements were all disinfected before they delivery to the nursing home.
"The students added Bible verses and positive quotes to the placemats to encourage residents that they are not alone during this time," said Elize Strachan, AMP'd Coordinator.
